Uber Chronicles (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive for Uber? Have you ever been curious as to what kind of people use Uber? Where they are going? What do they talk about during the ride? How do they behave, or misbehave?

This is the book to read!

Jessie Newburn’s “Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat,” the first in a series, answers those questions and more ... in the form of storytelling.

Driving for Uber since early 2016, Jessie chronicles her experiences with each--and every--passenger, from the conversations with interesting people with fascinating stories, to the incredibly everyday, ho-hum-ness of people who just need a ride from one place to another.

But don't let the ho-hum-ness of the ride fool you.

As Gabe Karpati, one of her earlier readers, says, “There is a relaxing magical quality to the way she writes these stories. A sweet quiet zen silence that is shining through every line. Jessie presents these encounters like a meditation, where the seer observes but doesn't get entangled.”

Ten different days and nights out driving for Uber.
Fifty-six passengers.
Fifty-six stories.

So, come along for the ride. Join in. Listen in. And experience what Uber is like from the front seat of the car.

The Agile Project Portfolio Management Framework Guide
The Agile Project Portfolio Management Framework (APPMF) is a framework within which people can address complex portfolio management problems while productively and creatively delivering projects of the highest possible value. The APPMF works well with any project delivery method. From Scrum to Waterfall, and anything in between.

The APPMF does not involve making project-by-project choices based on fixed acceptance criteria. Instead, decisions to add or subtract projects from the portfolio are based on the three goals of the APPMF:

1. Maximize the value of the portfolio
2. Seek the right balance of projects, thus achieving a balanced portfolio
3. Create a strong link to strategy, thus the need to build strategy into the portfolio

Defining strategy needs to come before you start project portfolio management. In order to select the right set of projects to execute, the strategic goals must be defined in advance.

The APPMF is an adoption of the Scrum framework and shares many of the principles it was built upon. The APPMF, like Scrum, is:

- Lightweight
- Simple to understand
- Difficult to master

The APPMF consists of Portfolio Teams and their associated roles, events, artifacts, and rules. Each component within the framework serves a specific purpose. The rules of the APPMF bind together the events, roles, and artifacts, governing the relationships and interaction between them.

Uber Chronicles: One driver, 35 Rides, Countless Stories
In July 2016, a TechCrunch article stated that Uber had completed over 2 billion rides for passengers. Two billion!

In this book, the third in the "Uber Chronicles" series by Jessie Newburn, the author takes you inside her car (and her mind) on 35 trips.

There's the young Uber passenger, who on an hour-long trip to both get his girlfriend and then bring her back to his home, shares his music collection with Jessie, tells the story of how he kicked out of college for cannabis possession, and fancies himself the best passenger she has ever had.

There's a brush with fame in picking up a contestant from The Voice and American Idol.

There's the first (and to date only) passenger to earn a three-star rating from her after requesting a ride while still on an Amtrak train 20+ minutes from arriving, treating Uber like a black car service and not even tipping a couple bucks for making her wait over 10 minutes before his train arrived.

There's the young man from India, celebrating his America-versary, who shares the challenges of discriminatory wages and trying to support his family after his wife just had a baby a few months ago.

There's the 40s-something couple flirting on a second or third date, the guy just back in the US after a decade abroad who doesn't know that speed cameras have been installed all over the city, and even her stories as an Uber passenger.

Jessie's "Uber Chronicles" books are striking a chord with readers from all walks of life as she shares her perceptions of, experiences with and stories about passengers from all walks of life.



Come along for the ride!

"A brief and fascinating read from the perspective of an Uber driver. Wonderful insights into riders as people. Fun and thought provoking at the same time." - Roy Appletree
